Interim Plus

Curriculum Supplements for Schools

Since September 2001 The Interim, Canada’s life and family monthly has produced a curriculum supplement using material drawn from articles that appear in newspapers, journals, and internet sites.

The material addresses life issues in our society. Teachers in various subject areas, like history, geography, philosophy, religion, family studies, sciences, and philosophy might welcome this special material in their planning of lessons where applicable.

The Interim Plus, is available via email by signing on to our educators list. It is also available online on our website.

As experience proves, some public policies, practices and decisions threaten both the beginning and end stages of human life, when we are at our weakest and most in need of protection.

The supplement reflects this overarching concern in its coverage of contemporary developments in the world.

It also represents one small way to keep these concerns in the forefront. Your cooperation in making this service known to your teacher colleagues would be much appreciated.
